The Respect Show

The Respect Show

Bully, Paul Giblin, Helen Connole and Paul Barnes take turns to present the show. The music is an eclectic mix of many styles from all over the world. The show aims to complement the annual Exeter Respect festival and celebrate diversity in the area and in the wider world. We believe the audience is as diverse as the music we play and we hope you are surprised at the incredible variety of great music we collect from all corners of the globe.

What brought you to Phonic FM?

Bully: An offer to present The Respect Show and a belief in what Respect is all about.
Helen: unexpected events in my life requiring a new focus.

What does Phonic FM mean to you?

Bully: A diverse mix of presenters, styles and music without cultural limitations.
Helen: My means of expression, my discovery of myself and of the world around me.

What do you do when you’re not on Phonic FM?

Bully: Work, rest and play! Prepare programmes for Phonic FM!
Helen: When I’m not on Phonic FM I can be found messing around with audio, or somewhere outdoors. Or indeed at work.
